What type of birth control are you on?

I am on low estrigen 24.... it claims that it is non weight gaining however my appetite is endless and I have no self control LOL..... and it also claims that it doesnt cause acne which seems to have just come on as well, only after starting the pill... I am considering Implanon, anyone have it or know someone on it? Sorry i know there is a few questions within this but please try your hardest to answer.

  • Copper IUD. I can't do the hormones so this was a good option for me. I love it.

  • good old fashion prayer. lol. and it does help we use condems...and rarely have sex. we're in the process of moving, we've been living with family for a while so it's very rare. he's going to work on getting cut soon though. i have 4 months worth of Yaz for when he does, just enough for when he does get cut, you're supposed to wait at least 3 months afterwards so they can make sure it didn't grow back.

  • Mirena IUD. LOVE IT. No problems at all. mild cramping at insertion but as soon as i left the office I had no pain or cramping at all. And no periods since! I have to have it removed in a year though because my 5 years will be up. I have to decide at that time if I want to reinsert a new one or maybe try for baby #3!
